First draft

IMG_3776

The photo is the typed first draft of my new novella, which is (very tentatively) named Good Advices. The longhand draft was finished about a month ago, but that version (jammed into a composition book in my scrawled handwriting) is all but impossible to edit, so now that it's typed and printed, the editing can finally begin. (Or conversely, the excuses for not editing have ended.)

I'm going to read it through once or twice (without a pen) to  really get a sense of what I have here, before I start to edit. I'm pretty happy with the storyline so far, but it still needs a lot of work, both for itself and for the interconnections with the two other related books I'm contemplating, which I'm collectively calling the Reckoning Trio. Publication is years away.
